Good Morning America!

On a corner not far from home is a retirement trailer park that flies a huge American Flag. I see this flag three of the four mornings on my way to work. Some mornings there isn't any wind, others the flag is just about straight out from the flag pole. This morning Carl and I went out and took pictures of this flag as the sun rose. When we first set up there wasn't any wind at all and as the sun rose it was like the flag was saying, 'Good Morning'! I have had a fascination with large flags every since I drove cross country with my mother and father-in-law back in 1991. The first really large flag I saw was from the table in a motorhome in Oklahoma City. I still remember the feeling I had when my eyes landed on that flag. I still get the same feeling and reflect what it means to me and this country. We also live not far from Luke Air Force Base and as I write this I can hear the jets flying overhead as they head out for training. Some around here just complain about the noise, but each and every time I hear them I have to say a silent, 'Thank you' to those that are working so hard and have volunteered to defend our country, our flag. So, thank you to all military past, present and future for doing what you do! Now here is how this flag greats each morning.
